About the Book:
When there is a lack of trust in a team—ask powerfully!
In Ask Powerful Questions, Will Wise explains how the questions we traditionally ask are virtually meaningless when it comes to establishing trust and connection.
If you want to transform “How are you?—I’m fine, thanks” into a conversation that changes not only how you lead, but who you are as a person, I highly recommend you check out Will’s new book, Ask Powerful Questions, here: https://weand.me/2017/09/22/book-launch-ask-powerful-questions/
Introducing a set of practical tools for accessing and understanding others by changing the way we ask questions, Will invites you to explore your own clarity of intent, improve your rapport, create openness, listen reflectively and grow empathy.
